“I find these cards to be very grounding and supportive for me when I need to center myself and receive a deeper message. They call me into the present moment. I've worked with many decks in my life and these cards are much deeper, carefully channeled and potent. Literally, the medicine of the messages are palpable. I bought 5 decks to give as gifts and the recipients loved them too. There is a difference between a highly manufactured and contrived product and something that is carefully curated from heart and spirit. This deck feels like true wisdom, hand crafted and written by a seasoned wisdom-keeper. I highly recommend these cards for your heart and soul or for the support of others.”

Wendy De Rosa

“The first thing you notice about this deck is the infusion of vitality in each of the 54 cards. The layers, colors, shapes, lines, and forms in the compositions are organic and spontaneous -- truly reminiscent of the natural world they embody and represent. The compositions on the card fronts are an interesting balance between abstract and concrete imagery. And, they are arranged so that the reader's eye is drawn to each aspect individually; while still being able to take in the entire card. I like layers as an artist, but I specifically benefit from them as a card-reader. Layers give a deck more multi-dimensional applications and accessibility. …….I have worked with these cards for about a week, and each time I pick up the deck, something new emerges. Something I did not see before makes itself known.”

Mel’s Journey to Creating
The Fine Artwork In
Her Medicine Cards

Mark, Gunian & Martin

Mark Bockley (on left) in Africa with his Teachers

This deck is inspired by a message received from Nature Spirits during a Dagara Stick Divination – which Mel experienced with Mark Bockley. Together they consulted with ancestors and spirits – and a divine message was received. Mark picked up on clear spirit guidance that Mel was needed to create a deck of Medicine Cards. He also saw Mel working with groups of people – using the cards for insight and healing. Mark recognized that this was Mel’s calling – and that it would bring emotional benefits both to Mel (in their creation) and to anyone who who used the cards.
Here’s the original note about the cards – written at the time of this Dagara Stick Divination – in January 2016.
Mel Hofmann Medicine Card Chalk Board
Soon after, Mel made an offering of ash to a tree in gratitude for this message, and agreed to take on this assignment.

And so it began…

Colored Pencils Journal
The powerful images and inspiring messages for the cards then came through to Mel – with the help of Spirits, synchronicities, visual journaling and a range of artistic experimentations.
Although the Muses are not included in her deck, Mel says they led the way for her – allowing her to trust the evolutionary process of creating these cards.
Mel also thanks Annie Danberg, LMFT – her visual journaling teacher, who gifted her with the guidance for the artwork as the framework for these cards.
Much of the artwork for the cards was created within the pages of a range of 7 visual journals through a span of years.
Pile of Journals

Mel says that the nature Spirits also had their hand in this project - long before the card creation started. As some of the art and photography was done prior to the assignment.

For example, the diamond shapes had already appeared in her fine art before creating the cards.
Diamonds In The Road Art
Some of her inspiration for the cards came from researching sacred animal medicine. For example, Mel learned that the land crab represents boundaries and so she paired artwork from her journals with a land crab photograph as her Boundaries card.

Other inspiration for cards came from
divine synchronicities.

For example, one night Mel dreamt of a bobcat. The next day, on a hike with a friend, they saw 2 two young bobcats on the path in front of them. One of the photographs captured on this day became part of the imagery on the first card in the deck.
Bee Card Image
Plus the bee photo seen on the back of the card, also happened by happenstance – and was discovered in a synchronous way while walking her dog.

The snake photos in other card’s layered artwork also includes snakes that Mel spontaneously discovered in a kismet way.

Tree Of Life
The card creation was messy and
spontaneous rather than pre-planned.
Mel tapped into her powers as an elder
Medicine Woman – and freely opened up to
her physical and spiritual intuition to connect
with the materials.
After a long and winding journey of creation, Mel finally,
ultimately, completed her deck of 54 cards in December of 2019.

“This is an exquisite medicine deck that is both evocative and provocative. We used it at our Women’s Journey Circle and everyone present received a huge gift of wisdom, insight and inspiration.”

A Magical Merging of
Healing Art and Fine Art

Because this deck is rooted in fine art, it’s important to treat each card that you choose in a reading as if it is a treasured work of art.

You might want to keep it out for a period of time, in an open space, so you can view it both as sacred inspiration and as beautiful art.

You may intuitively know where and how you want to display the card. But here are some suggestions.

  • Create an altar – with the card(s) – and other elements that are meaningful to you
  • Place the card on a stand.
  • Display the card(s) prominently in your living room on a table – as fine art to be admired by all.
  • Dedicate a private space for the card(s) in your closet – that only you will see

Wherever you choose to place the card after its drawing or selection - know that embracing the sacredness of the card is an important part of the ritual.

“I have the distinct good fortune to know Mel Hofmann in real life, so I was quick to buy a deck of these beautiful cards. While I assumed they would be good, I continue to be amazed at how provocative and helpful these cards are for my own spiritual development! Each card provides multiple depths of invitation beginning with the gorgeous images and moving through the excellent accompanying booklet. The cards have been particularly useful to me when I reach a "stuck" place or find myself overwhelmed. They gently, but quickly call me back to my own wisdom and knowing. The other terrific thing about his deck is that it is good for just about anyone - regardless of spiritual tradition. The topics are universal and connect well with various beliefs systems. This is a real rarity, in my own experience and very, very helpful. As such, they make a great and thoughtful gift!”

Rev. Dr. Melinda V. McLain


“The Sacred Journey Medicine Cards open up a gently piercing world of insight and activate a necessary dialogue with kindred spirits including animals and plants that help bring healing and a deepened affinity with nature and ourselves. Mel has created compelling visual essence fields that allow the spiritual energies to radiate and communicate with the viewer in a variety of ways. The layered imagery opens the door for multiple reads and perspectives to emerge with each successive viewing. Very engaging and also potently wild.”
